ANDRITZ and NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH have entered a strategic partnership to collaborate on serving the alternative protein market with future-oriented technologies and processes.

The collaboration will bring together NETZSCH’s expertise in fine grinding and subsequent classifying to extract a protein-rich fraction with ANDRITZ’s extensive know-how in key processes such as conditioning, extraction, dewatering, drying, extrusion, and pelleting complemented by advanced process automation and a first-class global service offering. Tailor-made process solutions include conceptual design, process engineering, implementation, automation, and maintenance of turn-key plants, as well as trials in the laboratories.

One key aspect of this partnership is the commitment to energy efficiency. The companies provide innovative technologies and processes that enable a significant reduction in energy consumption and thus create both ecological and economic added value.

Said Christian Kling, Director Business Development for Alternative Protein Solutions, ANDRITZ: “We are very pleased to have found a partner in NETZSCH that shares and strengthens our vision for the alternative protein market. It is an exciting market but moving from lab to industrial scale can be challenging. ANDRITZ – as a trusted partner on the side of its customers – not only has the production technology but also helps customers speed up commercialization and bridge the gap to full-scale production. With a history of 170 years, we have been engineering and implementing solutions for many industries including food and feed for decades.”

Added Matthias Kapp, Vice President Business Field Food & Pharma, NETZSCH: “With NETZSCH-developed innovative milling and classifying processes, we are responding to the pressing needs of the food industry and supporting more sustainable and efficient food production. Based on our technology and in collaboration with ANDRITZ, our focus is to further improve the quality and availability of plant-based protein sources to meet the growing global demand.”  For more visit andritz.com
